Establishing a Connection to the New Router
1 Pull the plug on the coaxial wire that is attached to the Verizon router. In the event that you have to contact Verizon in order to convert over to Ethernet, double check that you would still have access to the internet once the coaxial service has been turned off.

2 Launch your web browser of choice and go to the address http://192.168.1.1. This is the address that your Verizon router uses by default for its gateway.
3 In order to log in, you will need to use the router’s password. The default login is admin, and the password may be found on the sticker that came with the router. If you changed the password for the router, use the new password that you chose instead.
4 On the administration page, choose the My Network option. It’s in the general vicinity of the upper left corner.
5 Select Network Connections from the menu. You’ll find it in the menu on the left side of the screen.
6 To access the broadband connection, click here.
7 Click Settings.
8 Under “DHCP Lease,” click the “Release” button after scrolling down. This will cause the router to lose its connection to the internet.
9 After clicking the Apply button, quickly unplug the router. After selecting the Apply button, you should wait a few seconds before unplugging the power cord and the Ethernet connection from the rear of the Verizon router. This will ensure the best possible outcomes.
10 Connect the end of the Ethernet wire to the WAN/Internet port on your new router. The end of the Ethernet wire that was previously hooked into the Verizon router is now connected to this device.
11 Start up the new wireless router. After a few minutes, it should be able to connect to the internet after receiving a Verizon FIOS IP address from the ONT.
12 Establish a connection between your computer and the internet by using the newly acquired router. Instructions on how to do this task will be unique to each router. You will be able to connect through Wi-Fi if it is supported by the router. If you would rather connect via Ethernet, you will need to connect the network port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router and then run an Ethernet cable between the two.
The name of the wireless access point associated with the router will typically have some relation to the brand or model of the router. Check the user guide for details on how to log in.
It’s possible that you’ll need to do a complete reset on the new router if it was previously customized for use with another network. It is frequently as easy as putting the end of a straightened paperclip into the little hole labeled “Reset” on the back of the router. Detailed instructions may be found in the handbook that came with the router, but the process itself is often quite straightforward.
13 Simply connecting the MoCA adaptor will allow full TV access to be regained. In order to reconnect your TV set-top box to the internet, follow these steps:
Establish a connection between the coax-in port on the MoCA adapter and the cable that was previously connected to your Verizon router.
To use the MoCA adapter’s Ethernet port, plug an Ethernet cable into it.
Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your router by inserting it into any of the available LAN ports on it.
Wait a few seconds without having the TV set-top box plugged in, and then connect it back in.
Can I plug a router into Verizon ONT?
If you are able to run the wire yourself, all you need to do to connect it is plug it into the Ethernet WAN connection on the router and the Ethernet jack on the ONT. It’s possible that you don’t need a new router from Verizon. Either an Actiontec Rev I (red band) or a G1100 will do the job properly.
How do I connect my router to my ONT?
To create a hardwired connection between your router and the devices that may access the internet, you will need an additional Ethernet cable, one end of which must be plugged into one of the LAN ports located on your router. Remove the plug from the other end of the cable, then insert it straight into the appropriate port on your device. You will need to take one end of an Ethernet Cable and connect it to the LAN port located on your ONT.
Can I use my own router with ONT?
You may use the bridged port 1 on the Telus router or just connect straight into the ONT (which is the equipment that transforms the fiber optic feed to ethernet).
Does FIOS router need coax and Ethernet?
In response to: Does the FIOS Gigabit Router (G1100) need to be connected to both Ethernet and coax? There is just one of these options available for the IP WAN connection to the Ont: either MOCA WAN (COAX) or Ethernet. Your devices do not utilize direct IP to the ONT in any way, other than the router itself. Your router processes all IP traffic coming from the outside world.
Is Verizon ONT a modem?
FiOS does not utilize modems. You are, in essence, provided with an Ethernet connection or cable that links directly to the Internet. This information is not accompanied by any of the other details.
What cable goes from ONT to router?
An optical fiber cable is used to make the connection between the ONT (also known as the modem) and the Termination Point (TP). It connects to your router via a local area network (LAN) or ethernet connection and transforms light signals coming from the fiber optic line coming from your TP into electrical signals that your router can read. This is done by connecting to your router.
